NRCC and DCCC Release ads in Heated District 26 Race


The race for Florida’s 26th Congressional district is heating up as both the National Republican Congressional Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have released videos attacking Florida rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D) and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez (R) respectively.

Thank God! This race was snoozefest up until now, so there is a good chance that this is just of the beginning of the expected political Molotov cocktail cage match we have been expecting.

In the NRCC’s advertisement titled “Clouds,” the Florida lawmaker is slammed for creating “clouds of suspicion.”

The advertisement alleges that rep. Mucarsel-Powell “pushed taxpayer-funded loans meant for small business, but somehow the Wallstreet traded company where her husband’s an executive snagged two loans worth $15 million.”

On the contrary, the DCCC advertisement titled “Family,” takes political jabs at Mayor Gimenez’s tenure as Mayor of Miami-Dade County.

Calling him “Corrupt Carlos,” the advertisement argues that he’s been involved in “shady deals and government contracts.” Moreover, the Mayor is accused of giving “millions to businesses with ties to his family.”
